Lasun Yusuf, the candidate for the Labour Party in the Osun State governorship race, claims he has been voting since 1979 and is no longer a novice in the voting system.
Speaking with reporters, shortly after casting his vote at the Irepodun Local Government Area of the State, Mr. Lasun stated that the country is in trouble if vote-buying is observed in the election.
He expressed disappointment with the equipments supplied by INEC, stating that it took him 10 minutes to cast his ballot.
In his words, “It took me more than 10 minutes before I was able to cast my vote and I just hope that in the cost of the election, that process is going to be improved upon.

“I have been voting since 1979 when I left secondary school and this has consistently been my polling unit. This polling unit, we are always orderly and people always come out en mass to vote.”
When asked to assess the voting process so far, Mr. Lasun declined, saying “I am not going to comment on election that is still going on. The only thing I know for now is that I have just cast my vote and it took my about 10 minutes to do so.”
